I don’t respond to any emails on vacation. If something is truly urgent they can call me, I let it go to voicemail and then decide if it’s something I want to work on

This is a better question for your company’s bowl and your engagement team.

No emails or phone. If truly urgent they can call me. I’ve learned that if you actively engage and respond to emails, people will soon start to forget you’re on vacation and you’ll quickly end up working 4-5 hrs/day when you’re supposed to be off.

I took time off this week, and was asked to respond to an emails. Since I was off, I wasn’t expected to reply at the latest Wednesday. When I asked why, he said “I don’t know yet"

If your company gives you a phone they will typically expect you to go over emails and respond to urgent ones- even though not immediately

I recently received an offer from a new firm. I informed my managing partner ab it. He offered me slightly more $ to stay but still didn’t even come close to what I’d be making. I then gave him my 2 weeks notice and accepted the offer with the new firm. All amicable. I had 2 vacation days scheduled, which the firm knew about for months and happened to fall within my last 2 weeks. While out last week, they then told me to not worry ab coming back in and that I am terminated. Thoughts on this?
